Various kinds of lecithin are used in production of a wide range of cosmetic and personal care products such as creams, shampoo, and more. Stabilizing properties of lecithin aid in stabilizing the texture of creams, prevents water and fats and oils from separating. It also enhances the effect of other ingredients, such as lipids, and helps the perfect delivery of active substances to the skin, adding rich soothing and moisturizing touch. Lecithin has the ability to build liposomes that capture compounds and deliver them through skin barrier. Being nontoxic and not mutagenic, lecithin can be used in both rinse-off and leave-on cosmetic products.
